IPCA is the federation of five National Pharmaceutical Associations viz. IPA- Indian Pharmaceutical Assocation, IHPA- Indian Hospital Pharmacists Assocation, APTI- Association of Pharmaceutical Teachers of India, IPGA- Indian Pharmacy Graduates Assocaition, AIDCOC- All India Drug Control Officers Association.
With the development of specific and potent new drugs, from both synthetics and biologicals, the emphasis of the Pharmacist's responsibility has moved substantially towards the utilization of scientific knowledge in the proper use of modern medicines and the protection of the public that is inherent in their use.
Pharmacists play leadership roles in Community Pharmacy, Hospital Pharmacy, Pharmaceutical Industry, Regulatory Control and Drug Management, Academic Training of other health workers and research. In all these fields, their aim is to ensure optimum drug therapy, both by contributing to the preparation, supply and control of medicines and associated products, and by providing information and advice to those who prescribe or use pharmaceutical products. The Pharmacist in India is no longer a mere dispenser of medicines, but has assumed a more crucial role in healthcare through effective management of the medicines and leadership in healthcare delivery of the country.
